Small-Group Lisbon Sightseeing Tour by Segway with Food Tastings

Small-Group Lisbon Sightseeing Tour by Segway with Food Tastings

Your Segway tour begins by meeting your expert local guide at a convenient location in central Lisbon. First, get acquainted with your new ride. Segways are simple to learn and are operable on virtually any pedestrian terrain, making it an ideal way to explore a lot of ground without getting exhausted. Additionally, you’ll be able to reach areas that many walking and bus tours cannot. Listen up at the brief safety orientation, take it for a test spin, and be on your way. 

Follow your friendly guide to some of Lisbon’s most magnificent monuments. Wheel your way to Alfama, one of Lisbon’s oldest and most charming neighborhoods. Here, learn about the area’s history while rolling down its narrows cobblestone alleys and meeting local shopkeepers. 

Glide on over to the stunning Sé de Lisboa Cathedral, one of the most visited landmarks in Lisbon. Listen closely as your guide gives you a crash course in Portuguese architecture, pointing out the mix of different influences, like Gothic and Baroque styles. You won’t want to miss what’s next—the  medieval Castelo de São Jorge. Put your Segway into high gear to zoom up the hill upon which this stunning work of architecture is perched. From here, snap a few photos of the spectacular view that stretches all the way to the Tagus River.

Then, get to know Lisbon’s local characters when you meet local shop owners in town. Finally, try a sampling of local Portuguese cuisine, such as pastries, ice cream, and ginjinha (a local liqueur). Ask your guide any remaining questions you may have, as you make your way back to the meeting point, where your Segway tour of Lisbon ends.

Peter is a perfect guide. The tour runs in small streets, with minimal trafick. Guide made sure that everyone in the group is safe, and stay on top.
Two stops to taste lokal food, is a pluss.
All in all, a great way to get to know the old part of Lisbon.

Our family enjoyed the tour tremendously. Our guide Eduardo was a passionate storyteller of Portuguese history an showed around his beautiful city with pride and gusto.

There is nothing better way to learn about the culture than talking about history and politics while tasting local foods.

Traveling on Segway was a lot of fun. Its' a great way to discover a new city allowing to cover a good distance without getting on a tour bus.

An excellent and highly-enjoyable trip for the whole family 2 adults, 4 teenagers! Our guide, Eduardo Pirretti was fantastic, well-informed, and passionate about the history and future of beautiful Portugal. For a few first-time Segway riders in our family, it was extremely easy to get going and maneuver around town, with our guide easy directions. The Segways were perfect in navigating the narrow streets and hills in the Alfama neighborhood. The amount of time and itinerary was just perfect and we enjoyed the well-timed coffee, natas and Ginja the little restaurant also had fantastic empadas and Cod fritters and the Ginja was just right -- homemade and not too sweet! As an American in the midst of a Presidential campaign, I also greatly enjoyed discussing politics, economics and world events with our guide and learning about European views and opinions. In short, we loved it and we highly recommend it! Thanks again.

When it comes to experiencing a city, trams and busses might serve their purposes true enough. However, when it comes to an experience that really create memories they both fall short if compared to Segways.

Our tour was without a doubt worth every single cent it cost. The guides, Peter and Gonzalo, definitely made it an awesome experience with all their knowledge and friendly characters. They also possess the abilities to train a person that never have ridden a Segway previously to the tour to a level that more than enough suffices to complete it.

The food tastings at the end are a perfect way to conclude the trip with all its sightseeings along the way.
Simply put, I cannot recommend this tour enough!
Try it out for Yourselves and prove me wrong if You can

Well done guys, keep up the good work!

A good way to travel around the city with the least effort. This tour took us to most of the places around the city centre. Also included food tasting though not so much. Enjoyed the tour a lot and would recommend to those who like to find alternative ways of travelling around.

We all really enjoyed this tour. We'd never been on segways before and were nervous but our guide was lovely and made sure we were all safe before we started. The tour itself was great. We got to go up little alleys and see some hard to access parts of Lisboa and it was nice to finish off by tasting some unique Portuguese food. I recommend this one for anyone who is curious.
